Why the blog?

Chosen…He Chose Me…

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last.  John 15:16a

This is not my life verse as many would call it, but it is a very important verse to me.

I have a talk that I have given entitled “He Chose Me” – it’s a bit of my life story and proof that God chose me.

I cannot cut and paste that talk here because it is certainly more than 700 words.

The short version is:

God has saved me physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  He chose me.  I could have been a drug addict or an alcoholic – easily.  I could have been so deep in immorality that it would have been near impossible to come out of it.  I could have been dead – and almost was.  I could have NOT had a relationship with my gracious and merciful Lord.  I could have been damaged in so many ways.

I do bear scars.  However, gradually, when the Lord knows I can handle it, He exposes my scars and grafts new skin on.  It is hard and it hurts during the process. In the end, however, I am free of some thing that has plagued me for years.

This blog is a reflection of many things.  These days I plan to post my plans for being purposeful and healthy (physically, spiritually and emotionally).  Some of those topics would be in (Essence of Everyday) that I just want to document or share.

Since I work full time and serve in a volunteer role almost full time, I occasionally post some recipe or meal plan I came up with here so I can pin it to my Pinterest boards for future reference.

If there is something the Lord is really impressing on my heart or things that I just want to shout from the roof top because God is Good – ALL THE TIME. (God’s Goodness or Robin’s Ramblings)- which flows into the next thing:

Healing Heart Hurts.  Healing Hearts….My heart has had much to heal from.  Most people do.  Our scars come from different things.  I feel I am the most emotionally healed that I have ever been in my life but getting here was a process – a long one.  Occasionally I find that I need more healing. Many women have hurting hearts that need healing.  If we can help each other along, maybe we will get there faster.

I am very transparent.  I have been through much.  I have suffered much.  And I am willing to talk about it. Of whom much is given, much is required.  I have been given many hard things to go through and bear.  So God expects me (and I want) to give back to others who have hard things to deal with in a BIG way.  I want to be used of God.  This blog is just a small part of that BIG work I must do.

I also love to read and sometimes post what I am reading (if I posted all I read, that’s all this blog would be) and those are in Robin’s Readings.

I’m so thankful to be chosen.  To be a chosen child of God.  I’m so grateful He looked down on me, pathetic sinner that I am and CHOSE ME to be His own. So thankful He chose to forgive me of many wrongs.

Lord, may I never forget all You’ve done for me, All You ARE..and may I never forget to continually praise you for those things!
